  • Leupold Mk4 image question

    I got my Mk4 back from servicing with more issues. One is that the image through the scope does a twisty dance at the top and bottom when moving my eye from side to side, especially at low power. I don't remember it doing that before, as I'm sure I would have noticed it. But, for the sake of my sanity, does anyone else's Mk4 do the same dance? Or is it a nice, flat window-like image throughout the eyebox?

    Are you parallax free when you see the distortion?

    3.5-10?

      The scope is 12-40X

      It is not a parallax issue. It occurs across the focal range. The scope is properly parallax free in relation to the reticle when the target image is in focus.

        If the scope is Second Focal Plane, I'm assuming you're only seeing the funny stuff in the target image and not the reticle?

        Anyway, I can't reproduce your issue in my scope, but it is a 3.5-10. Not a very good comparison, probably.

          Thanks.

          My bad. I should have mentioned that it's a Mk4 Spotting Scope, not a rifle scope. The whole image doesn't move, just the edges, like looking through a fish bowl.
